The pledge program at the Beta Pi is designed to ensure that each initiate:Jay Gardner

  • understands the history and workings of the Chapter and of TKE National
  • is thoroughly indoctrinated into the traditions of TKE at Georgia Tech and understands how they contribute to the strength of the Chapter
  • is familiar with all the active members and with the other pledges
  • understands and accepts his responsibilities towards the Chapter, especially regarding finances and risk management
  • demonstrates willingness to do his share of the work necessary to maintain the Chapter
  • understands the basics of time management, study skills, and personal finances

Each meeting will include:

  • An educational presentation* - topics for each week are in the pledge manual
  • Evaluation of mastery of previously assigned material (a quiz)
  • Discussion of other business of interest to pledges
  • Opportunity for feedback from you about the Chapter and the pledge program
  • Gavel - a time to speak your mind freely

*The educational portion only of each meeting is open to brothers except for invited guests.
